I watch a raindrop slide slowly down the pane. On one side a rainbow arcs over the mountains. On the other side I see your reflection like a mirror into my soul and know you will always grace the pages of my life. A tear beads down my cheek keeping pace with the droplet.
I know it’s time because your father finally lifts himself from the car. When we talk to you, I hold your flag to my breast. Our love affair with you will never end.

As heartbreaking as it is (unfortunately) timeless.
Very eloquent imagery.
“…your father finally lifts himself from the car.” There are more poetic images here, but this is the one that got me, with its clarity. Lovely.
A beautiful story. Amazing that it is told in under 100 words.
I’m wondering could they be visiting the grave site of a son?
Lovely phrasing, “…know you will always grace the pages of my life”. Just beautifully written. Full of emotion but not maudlin.
